Question How many consoles do you use?


Hi,
I'm asking because I realized today that I use 10 (6 real "consoles" and 4 in X). And I'm working at all of them...
Some time ago, when I was starting my Linux experiments, my average was near to 1. After some time it was 3, now it's 10. What next?

When I do my programming for the job and university, I usually have four consoles open in X, and one open for su, at first I was using only one almost all the time, then, as you know, it became much easier to work with several consoles open, one for editing the code, one for compiling, one for running, another one to create additional env variables and so on.

With programming it's different. One console for code, one for header to this code, one for next code, header, console to compile. With 3 different modules it's getting too little to have only 6 consoles (without X).

Doing a whole bunch of ssh tunneling and wireless crap, I got used to being logged into about 4-5 machines at once, so I was happy when I found the init script that allowed me to crank the number of terms up to 10.

Cheers,

10? Not enough soon. Maybe I should write something to solve this... But which key-combinations to assign to new consoles? Hmm...
